As far as the “newly added features and modes” for Sonic Frontiers mentioned in the tweet above go, this will likely be Juke Box, Photo Mode, and a new Challenge mode. This is based off another tweet on November 2022 from the official Sonic the Hedgehog account that outlines the three free upcoming updates coming in the 2023 content roadmap.

It’s unclear what this new Challenge mode will be, though many fans want a Boss Rush mode of some kind. We won’t have to wait long, though, to see what Sega has in store here.
As for the next two updates, Sega plans on having the second expansion add Open Zone challenges and a new Koco, while it celebrates Sonic’s birthday with some special in-game event. This likely means that this second update is slated around June 23.
After that, the third free update will feature new playable characters and a new story. There’s no release date for it yet, but given the timing of the first two updates, it will unofficially expected to arrive sometime in Fall 2023.
